  1. When I play battlefield bad company 2 my computer sometimes freezes in the middle of a game and then restarts. Can somebody please help me fix this? I'll post a minidump and dxdiag file.

    Hi, the error code 124 indicates a hardware problem but unfortunately that could mean any hardware item in the system. Start by running through this guide to isolate the cause.

    well i just got my new computer like 1 or 2 weeks ago, and my put radeon hd 4650 and my 500 watt psu, so im guessing one of them might be the problem

    I would have a good look at the PSU wattage. The minimum system requirements for the graphics card are:

    Check the wattage available on the PCI-E power connector.

    Let me know if the PSU you have meets this requirement and then I will analyse your minidumps.

    yes my psu is 500 watts and has a 6 pin pci express. i have been reading many forums and lots of people said the freezing is probably from having realtek drivers and using punkbuster

    i saw a youtube comment and it said to turn off hardware monitoring while playing so i tried that for an hour and a half and it worked so far. ill get back too you if i get any freezes

    Well after lots of playing without gpu-z running in the background, I haven't gotten a freeze yet, so i think this case is solved.
